The first generation Ford Escort was designed in Great Britain as a replacement for the aging Ford Anglia, and was a major breakthrough for the company in European and Asia-Pacific Markets. The Ford Escort has been built in several countries in Europe, plus Australia, New Zealand and Taiwan. The Hot Wheels casting depicts a rally car based on the two-door saloon body in right-hand drive. The Ford Escort is sporty, compact and can take whatever you can throw at it!
